[ARCHIVED] Summer Brings Higher Temperatures and Higher Wildfire Risk

Fire

As the weather grows warmer and drier throughout Southern California this summer, the potential risk for wildfires will increase. Although experts can't predict exactly when a wildfire will occur, wildfires are an inevitable part of life in Southern California and many residents have not made the necessary preparations. Protect your home this summer by reviewing these resources from Orange County Fire Authority


  • Clear your property of any combustible weeds and debris;
  • To evaluate the potential risk for a fire at your home, consider scheduling a free Wildfire Home Assessment by contacting OCFA at 714-573-6774. Guidelines (PDF) to conduct your own home assessment are also available; 
  • Under certain weather conditions, the National Weather Service will issue a Red Flag Warning; be prepared by reviewing the criteria and precautions for a Red Flag Warning (PDF)
  • Using OCFA's supply checklist (PDF), prepare a disaster supply kit, or GO! Bag, with food, water, and supplies for each member of your household (including pets); and
  • Register for the County of Orange's emergency notification system, AlertOC, to receive emergency alerts by phone or text message.
